Was charged $129 plus $20 pet fee when girl at front desk told me $99 with $10 pet fee. Air conditioner sounded like a plane taking off!!!! Over all the room was dated! Loved the location and the staff was very good to my family and my dog Sugar!!

Great value. You can take your dog to the dog beach by the pier if you want beach time with your pet. The view from my room was best I ever had. We will be back! We didn't use pools but they were really warm!

We have stayed here at least a dozen times (if not more) over the last 13 years. We have never had a bad experience. All of the staff have always done all they could to make our stays wonderful. The only complaint I have is that i never want to leave!

First time staying here. Room was nice. Shower had low pressure. Pools were heated and clean. Service was top-notch! Everyone was very nice and helpful. Our stay was at Christmas, so not everything was available, but we would recommend Sandpiper Beacon Beach Resort to anyone!

The hotel is one of the originals in PCB. There is a difference between old and shoddy repairs that have been done for many years that are not lasting. The rooms are small and it seems that they have added extra beds to the rooms thru out the years and now the rooms are cluttered and not functional. Walls and...

My girlfriend and I and her family have stayed here the past 2 years and overall had an ok experience.
